Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

"I would give Mike C. 10 stars if I could! 5 just doesn't seem like enough! He is such a great teacher!! My ten-year-old son has been taking drum lessons from Mike for a few years now. He continues to look forward to going to his lessons every week. Mike makes it fun and keeps things interesting. He takes the time to get to know his students and the music they like. He incorporates it in to the lessons along with proper technique and reading music. I can't say enough positive things about him as teacher and just an all around great guy. :-)"

"Thor really knows what he’s talking about! He has a solid footing in rock, jazz, Latin, and many other settings and his compositional skills and musicianship really back up his expertise as a drummer. I took lessons from Thor for three years while I was in high school and now I study jazz drums at Elmhurst College. Looking back, Thor was definitely my favorite teacher. He brings an enthusiasm and friendly demeanor to each and every lesson and I couldn’t think of a better teacher for a beginner/intermediate drummer."

"Mark Review

I have had many different types of music teachers through out my life and Mark is by far the best. He is very serious about helping his students do what they want to do. I had specific goals I wanted to accomplish. Mark took my goals seriously and did what he could to help me understand the techniques to be a good drummer. He broke things down in to little steps that helped me to practice on my own and figure specific drum patterns out, He gave me the tools to improve myself as a musician, Mark did not have to but he chose to put a lot of his own time in to teaching me what I wanted to learn He obviously cares about his students and takes them seriously. I highly recommend him to any future students"
